Diritto costituzionale. Rivista quadrimestrale undertakes an ambitious project. Many legal journals are already present in the field of constitutional law, some of them are the most traditional and prestigious print reviews, others belong to a multitude of on-line journals which are considerably growing in the recent times and are quickly accredited by the scientific community. Constitutional law is a very energetic matter, stimulated by on going Italian and foreign institutional events as well as by the issues of the difficult European integration process, but also fueled by constitutional and European courts case-law. So that the scientific reviews are inevitably provoked to focus their attention on the current news more than on the theoretical context. Obviously, on this ground on-line journals enjoy an unbearable advantage over traditional print magazines. Diritto costituzionale. Rivista quadrimestrale does not intend to compete with other periodicals in pursuing information and comment of the on going events. It is characterised by a strictly monographic setting, in which each issue is dedicated to one specific theoretical high-profile theme. Each issue has an editor who proposes to the direction board the theme of the monograph issue and the topics to be addressed and identifies the authors to be invited to develop them. The editorial plan is the result of a collegial choice of the direction board; it covers an entire two-year period and is indicated by the review itself, so that anyone interested can make a proposal, announcing the specific subject he/she intends deal with. The Journal is therefore "open" and happy to accommodate anyone's essay in scheduled topics. Articles written in languages other than Italian are also welcome.
